Landmark Learning “Fundamentals of Media”
Adobe Flash, including ActionScript
Mike Lambert, then Media Specialist at The Virginian Pilot, wanted to enrich his esteemed Fundamentals of Media course with a good dose of technology. He had dozens of audios clips and several video clips on hand, as well as illustrative artwork by Pilot staff. What he needed was a way to combine these elements in a dynamic way, so that his narration could trigger transitions without a lot of tedious manual programming. The answer was a custom SoundSynch class, which allowed his team to assign cue points to exteral MP3 files and have those do the grunt work.
